MicroBizMattersDay on January 8th

The John Cracknell Youth Enterprise Bank and the Youth Enterprise Team of Hull City Council are to play a significant part in #MicroBizMattersDay on January 8th to celebrate the contribution made by Micro Businesses to UK Economy. As part of the day, micro businesses across the UK are being encouraged to give 8 minutes of their time to support to other micro businesses. In Hull the JCYEB has commissioned a video featuring Weasie Wears, Apple Pear, Engaging Education, Labrascals and Millie Rose that will be used on the day as part of the Enterprising Young People Hour, in the video the Hull young entrepreneurs will be giving 1 minute tips on youth entrepreneurship and the Big 13 enterprise skills.

Councillor Martin Mancey, Portfolio Holder

“ It’s fantastic that young entrepreneurs in Hull are supporting Micro Biz Day 2016 by playing an active part in the Enterprising Young People Hour and by giving up their time to support other young entrepreneurs across the UK . Hull’s involvement  in this annual day of recognition, action and learning further illustrates our commitment to youth entrepreneurship and micro businesses”

Tina Boden Founder of Enterprise Rockers and Micro Biz Day

“ We are delighted that Hull  through its work in supporting micro businesses, in particular young entrepreneurs, will be joining us on 8 January 2016 as part of Micro Biz Matters day, on the day hundreds of thousands of micro business owners – we really hope it will be 1 million – will be giving 8 minutes (or more) of their time to help other micro business owners somewhere in the world. The three main areas of focus for #IGave8 minutes of action to help other micro enterprise owners are Customers, Cash flow and Confidence”

Ross Bennett Chair Hull Youth Enterprise Partnership

“Young people who set up in a business are just like any other person that does apart from one key fact that there is a tendency for organisations and large businesses not to take them seriously yet they, like all micro businesses, are playing a vital role in ensuring that our economy turns the corner. Britain’s micro businesses in general and younger entrepreneurs in particular are almost twice as optimistic about the future growth of their business compared to older peers.

So in a nutshell it’s not always about high growth and expansion for young people, it’s about enjoying what they are doing and many are wanting to put back into their community, not because it’s the trendy thing to do but because it’s the right thing to do and for that reason I am pleased that so many young people are making a contribution to #MicroBizMattersDay 2016.”
